New Okkervil River video: Pulled Up The Ribbon

Video: Okkervil River – “Pulled Up The Ribbon”

Okkervil River – Pulled Up The Ribbon (Official Video)

Directed by Christopher Good. From In The Rainbow Rain, out April 27 on ATO.

And the hot heart healer
Is a sweet street feeler
And a wild wet wheeler
The pink prince of failures
Is a spoiled sea sailor
With terns and whalers

I don’t know what’s going on in this song with its oceanic imagery and references to anchors and shipwrecks, but it sounds massive. It’s no secret that Will Scheff digs that Phil Spector/Brian Wilson wall of sound, and his interpolation of “Sloop John B” (“John Allyn Smith Sails”) is my all-time favorite Okkervil River song.

The video’s cool too.
